As you can see, we have increased our hours and we need your help. Please consider becoming a volunteer at the Museum. We need volunteers to be:
- Docent/Tour Guides
- Help organize our research files
- Help run our booths at upcoming events
We need help on both weekends and during the week. If you are interested in helping share the history of this wonderful area, please contact us today. Training will be provided.
For over 40 years, the Waterford Historical Museum has depended on its volunteers for many tasks, from stuffing envelopes to cataloguing objects. With the arrival of a full-time director, the Museum will be taking on many new projects - projects that need your help!
There are volunteer opportunities at the Museum to suit practically any interest. Time commitments are flexible, and can range from a few shifts at the information desk to regularly scheduled hours as an office assistant.
Volunteers can work in any of the following areas:
Administration: As the Museum expands, our administrative obligations continue to increase. We are producing more mailings, organizing our files, and computerizing many of our records. Administrative volunteers can help out with numerous projects, from stuffing newsletters to entering data into our computer system. Experience is not a requirement: just a willingness to help out!
Programs: We are committed to sponsoring educational and engaging programs for people of all ages. However, we always need volunteers to help set up the Museum, to provide refreshments for programs, or to clean up afterwards. If you would like to fit volunteering at the Museum into your busy schedule, this is a great way to do it.
Docent / Information desk: During our season we need volunteers to welcome visitors, answer questions, and lead tours. This year we will be open more frequently, so we need a strong group of volunteers to keep us open all season. If you have volunteered as a docent in previous years, please consider volunteering again - and if you haven't served as a docent before, this is a great way to show off our museum and our town to visitors.
